One stat is way over the top, and suddenly the Cayman is almost just as fast as the Vette to 250 kph in the calculation. Typical press car shenanigans, knowing VW.

Just look at the 0-160 value for validation. Something's smelling here.

AutoBild did not publish a 0-160 time.
It must have more than 430 PS to keep up with the C8. Its not only the press cars, which have more power than advertised.
For example: 0-250 in 23.6 by a costumer heavier manual boxster.

Damn, I hate being wrong lmao. This man can shift.
I guess turbos really do make a difference in comparison to N/A V8 and the heavy weight of the Vette.
At least it's faster on the track :D

What's with the ridiculous attempts to constantly accuse Porsche of cheating?
Have you been pollinated by dr cosimo? It's obvious from the results above that the Corvette is faster, and the difference in both the European and American tests is of the same order of magnitude.
You might wish the Corvette's lead was bigger. But it won't be, as its power advantage is partly offset by the extra 200+kg.

Well, Porsche gets away with it when they accuse other manufacturers of cheating.

I gotta admit, the 0-200 time caught me off guard. It makes me a little uneasy seeing how easy Porsche beats the competition and can even keep up with much more powerful cars. A bit too uneasy if I'm being honest.

I remember that story. Well, anyone accusing someone without convincing evidence looks bad. And Porsche have shown themselves to be idiots since Rorl drove the GT-R in 7:54, and the captain Snail Von Saurma in 7:38.
Nissan then fairly responded to them by suggesting Walter Rorl to study fast driving at their driving school:)

i don’t manipulate anyone and i try to keep my sources hidden, all i do is i just pull the cover off the manufacturers little lies and if you can see what’s happening behind the scenes, then you judge for yourself on the rest of the lies where their marketing department takesover.

i only remind people to not allow vw to cloud your judgment through some lap times and an inside racing driver they use to deceive the public with bespoke tires and a prototype machine that differs completely from that they deliver to the customers.

they were legit until nissan introduced the r35. things went downhill and they no longer can be trusted. we all know no stock jdm car can mess with eu supercars, but vw board of directors had to **** things up so badly and turned their cars into a childs toy that can lap faster than anything they throw at.

ferrari did publish some false figures on engine power before on some models, but they never head to the ring to prove their cars are superior in every way possible and have once set a new record. they know they will sell without showing off our car ran a 6 - 7 minutes and couple of seconds around the ring. they have their loyal customers that put down a deposit blindly, they receive invitations a hot dinner at a special event with a classic music job done aka the italian job :)

lap times sells and the world is filled with thousands and millions of stupid people, if vw-911 says they outran stefan bellof’s 956 time in a tuned 992 gt3, some people are prepared to believe it without a doubt.

we do have a lot of examples on this site too with a corrupt officer to back them up at whatever the cost, through threats by deleting and booting :)
